How do you think the Pillar Men would have settled into modern society had they awakened in the current era without Nazis or Hamon warriors to stop them ?
I feel like watching a JoJo episode from part 3 or 4? What are your favourites?
Vanilla Ice arc. Kira's Quiet Life. Sheer Heart Attack. Either D'Arby. Mariah's Bastet. Highway Star.
Jolyne and Pucci being the best part of it goes without saying, but I do like a lot of the early prison stuff even though it's so slow paced. I know a lot of people don't but I feel like that might just be coming down from the high of Part 5 being so action packed and intense.
when will this fucking meme end
I've said it before but I love the scope of Part 6, pretty much the entire cities and even the world is destroyed by some stands.
Bruno in charge of taking care of a girl who needs to pee
>go piss in the closet, bitch
Weather Report in charge of taking care of a girl who needs to pee
>go over there and i'll absorb it with my clouds miss
WR > Bruno
He could be you
He could be me!
He could even be-
I feel like I was the only person waiting for this the whole episode. Anybody else?
It has a lot going for it.
Jolyne was the most fleshed-out and developed JoJo in the series at that point, and Pucci was an equally great villain to go with her. Hermes is a great Brojo and gets a ton of cool shit to do and help out with, and Annasui and Weather's shit is fun as well. Seeing Jotaro in a genuinely helpless situation and hearing about his weaknesses made me appreciate him a lot more. It's the only thing that really gave DIO any depth. The fights were largely great and brutal as shit, see: Sky High, Underworld, C-Moon, Planet Waves, Jumpin' Jack Flash, nearly everything with Whitesnake etc. And the ending and how it made Jolyne the most heroic JoJo since Jonathan was as great as it was devastating.
>why did the zombies have to be invisible?
im so fucking hyped for FF to be animated
pucci and white snake as well
>daily reminder, flaccid pancake
Is Jotaro here? Tell him I will hug, kiss and marry Jolyne!!!!
Just my luck, a rare Naranciafag-free thread and it's infested with frogposters
it took about half a year, but i managed to filter over 200 frogs and im proud to say i see nothing but hidden posts
I will hug, kiss and marry Jolyne!!!!
I WILL HUG, KISS AND MARRY JOLYNE!!!!!!
I can't wait for Americans to go to bed so we can actually have a good thread.
>no spin off where his coworker stalks him throughout the entire part & eventually tries to take over the entire series
You seriously took what he said literally?
Of course he understood. He was just dumbfounded that Annasui would be asking something that stupid when the world was literally ending and wasting valuable time thinking of a plan. The only thing on Jotaro's mind was that if he didn't stop Made In Heaven then his daughter would fucking die.
Annasui dindu nuffin wrong. He was asking the important questions
>one of my favorite characters
>named after one of my favorite bands
>never getting any love
it's fucking bullshit
Everyone else that got the shaft in ASB got into Eyes of Heaven why not her
I'm playing through Eyes of Heaven right now and while I could complain about a lot of things the one that really gets under my skin is that you don't ever visit the turtle room in-game. I just wanna see all the Jojo's and their pals hanging out in the room and chilling in between levels.
Isn't that room surprisingly tiny? So there'd be 30+ crammed in that little thing, several of whom have no idea what the fuck is going on because they don't know about stands.
But yeah they should have used the turtle as a hub world of sorts. Apparently Araki had a hand in writing the game and originally it was going to be super long and elaborate but they had to cut it down considerably to the shitty part 3 rehash it is now.
>implying all star doesn't match perfectly with the ED
I don't think animeonlies are that bad as long as they accept the fact that they are way behind and to shut up about some overused memes.
My girlfriend only recently got into JoJo, but she's not overbearing about it at least
Part 6 is probably tied with Part 5 in terms of having my favorite fights. Watching Jolyne fight is more fun than any of the other Jojos because she's one of the only ones to mix stand abilities with hand to hand combat. I don't remember Jotaro, Josuke, or Giorno ever punching their enemies. It adds a really satisfying brutality to the combat. Stone Free is also my favorite main protagonist stand because of how creatively Jolyne uses such a basic power as turning into string.
part 6 isn't my favorite part by any measure but it probably has my favorite stands. as you mentioned stone free gets a lot of mileage, something about kiss just speaks to me, even stand of the week's like jail house rock are memorable.
Meant to post this image.
Yeah, it's nice to see that kind of fighting has been showing up in Jojolion.
>Jail House Rock
He's Jonathan's kid though.
Jotaro is Jolyne's father, Sadao is her grandfather, Joseph is her great-grandfather, George is her great-great grandfather and Jonathan is her great-great-great grandfather.
They should have run into Dead Man's Questions Kira in the story mode. He could have been a playable character, though I'm happy they included his costume for Kosaku.
If they included JJL Kira too then that'd mean 5 Dios and 4 (and a half) Kiras.
Giorno is not a Joestar, as he is a son of Dio, I will not allow you to disgrace his family like this any further.
Emporio is here. Better run, Gay Priest.
Is it just me or is Made in Heaven kind of weak? It's not even the best time power despite all the bullshit Pucci had to go through to get it. King Crimson is better. Bites the Dust is better. Hell, even Jotaro's time stop was stronger. He'd have beat Pucci if he let Jolyne get stabbed by some knives. I mean, with Stone Free she could have just closed up her stab wounds with string, or Jotaro could pull off the same bullshit to restart her daughter's heart if she actually did die. Anyway, I'm getting off track.

part 5 isn't fully retranslated just yet, but you can find all of the good translations so far here: http://bato.to/comic/_/comics/jojos-bizarre-adventure-part-5-vento-aureo-r6270
make sure to skip past the old scans.
why you're third best boy, right behind diego and joshu
that wasn't what i meant. what i meant was skip the old scans for the stuff that was already retranslated.
Act 4 is just a bigger Act 3.
>stealing one car may raise suspicion
>let's steal a hundred cars instead
>trust me I'm 15 it will work out
I don't get how people think Giorno can't be funny.
Animeonlyfag here, only recently got into the series. After I finish part 4, should I start the manga from the beginning, or start at part 5?
you can do either, but i'd suggest starting with part 5. just don't fall into the "part 5 is bad" hivemind and you'll be good.
Lets also praise the rest of the madmen of Passione

>absurdly strong stand that destroys everything that goes down
>might not affect me
>well, better fucking jump off this very high place
>Guy trying to rip my heart out
>If I tear myself limb from limb, maybe he won't be able to find it
You guys know the Rush Mode thing for All Star Battle, right? Where fast-fisted stand users (and Jonathan) go into blazing fists?
Mista can enter that too, he uses his gun. But you know what attack activates it ?
His motherfucking knee kick.
Guido Mista clashes with a stand first by KNEEING IT IN THE FISTS. HIS MORTAL, HUMAN KNEE.
GUIDO MISTA TAKES ON THE LIKES OF STAR PLATINUM AND THE WORLD WITH HIS KNEE AND A COUPLE OF BULLETS
This just confirms it further. Mista is the biggest madman in the series.

>They show up in the end even knowing that they were all completely useless
>everyone just forgets that most of them were dangerous psychopaths, like the kid who blinded that other student with his stand for having a shit waifu or whatever and then tried to have Koichi and Josuke killed

why were these allowed
>guy makes all my comrades and me old
>knock him out of the train
>he's still clinging to the train from the outside
>better throw myself off the train to take him down with me
You mean Josuke? Yeah, I thought that was weird too.
I thought he was the protagonist, but most of the manga is actually narrated from Koichi, Rohan, Jotaro, Okuyasu, Hayato and Kira's point of views. His part was stolen from him...
The bullies at the beginning call him Jojo because they can't pronounce Higashikata. It was the same thing with Jotaro. He was only ever called Jojo by his delinquent friends.
>Fuck, fugo went inside a goddamn mirror
>now i have to babysit this blondie AND look for the house key
>also this silk haired mother fucker thinks hes hot shit trying to get me in the mirror
>dumbass doesnt even know i made my stand look like me just to break his kneecaps
Josuke's arc is basically over when he defeats Bad Company since his grandfather's death is avenged at that point
The people who should have the most stock in stopping Kira is Rohan desu, i think the whole thing got away from araki desu
Uhh, you dont get to bring stands.
i would call that a different arc since his original motivator to protect the town was the death of his police officer grandfather, jotaro is the one who reopens that old wound
the stupider the user, the better they are at figuring out what their stand can do
Jotaro went on to get a doctorate and it took him forver to figure out he could stop time, meanwhile there is a fucking bird who just instinctively knows how to rain frozen death from the unforgiving skies where it roosts
>implying birds are not inherently evil and cunning creatures who would know how to wield powerful abilities to kill their prey
There's a reason these fuckers are descendants of the dinosaurs.
And how did Kira know what he can plant mini Killer Queen into his son ass, so everytime someone ask him about his dad, everybody blow up and time resets 1 hour back in time ?
>settled into modern society
Nobody would have stopped them from getting the red stone of Aja, they all would have turned into the ultimate life forms and then we would have became their slaves.
With a little bit of luck, and having in consideration that ultimate Kars had an IQ of 400, they would have seen the potential of humanity and probably conform a triumvirate of benevolent tyrants, taking as much as they needed from humanity but letting us develop as much as we like until we had conquered the stars in the name of our fabulous aztec gods of gains.
Does anyone have the full version of this image? I remember seeing it a while back but for some reason I can't find it.
As if that was a bad thing.
glad to hear you like it, one think to keep in mind that each part/season tends to be radically different from the next, so don't feel bummed out if there's a radical shift in tone as the protagonist changes
It's hard to say, since I like all of them. My opinions on them always fluctuate
Jolyne > Joseph > Giorno > Johnny > Josuke > Jonathan > Jotaro > Gappy
Now, I don't hate Gappy, it's just that he hasn't grown on me as much as the others.
I think most stand users just have an instinctive understanding of how their stands work. Kinda like how the architect from part 4 instinctively knew that he can't let anybody look at his back, even though Cheap Trick never actually spoke to him.
Or maybe Notorious B.I.G. lets Carne absorb the people he kills to make a new body.
>This man refused to have a child
I do not understand. He was swimming in pussy, loaded with cash, and was taking care of his best friends family, why did he NOT want to pass on his wheels?
ya know, one thing I really like about part 5 is how almost everyone is a pro at using their stand's abilities in different ways during combat
First read everything here: http://mangafox.me/manga/vento_aureo/
I've been itching to reread it but since I don't wanna go through it just to get cockblocked by the shit translation towards the end, i've been waiting it out. Good to know there's not too much left
>most people on /a/ don't read manga
>most people on /a/ don't even watch much anime
Why even come here?
Is Purple Haze jerking off at the beginning?
Now we have to wait for the Oasis fight to be posted.
how did people read part 4 before the invincible trio scans? i can understand dealing with the old part 5 ignition-one scans, but duwang seems like it'd be unreadable. there had to of been other part 4 scans besides duwang back then, right?
the biggest mistake araki made in all of jojo was not continuing the speedwagon bloodline
No really, that's what gay people did back then. They either devolved into degeneracy and got arrested or dedicated their lives to a family name, usually a crush they had.
What power but unrequited love would really convince a man to change his ways after one encounter in an alleyway?
at least he didn't have to suffer like the Zeppeli's.
JOLYNE IS SO PERFECT I WANT TO KISS HER!!!! JOLYNE!!!!
Well rocks coming from a Mother Earth makes a sense.
Have we had any Madonna stands? (You know, because Madonna = Mary, Mother of Jesus, the whole reason that Thot chose the name)
I find it so hard to comprehend what happened. SCR summoned some extraterrestrial(?) beings, everyone was swapping bodies, other stands were being controlled by SCR, King Crimson fuckery, Diavolo' spirit was in Trish's body who was already inhabited by Mista, some shit about a light source being behind your head because of shadows, the ARROW SHIT AND GER. All this along with shitty scans and translations.
I think the fight will become more clear when the scans come out.
I agree completely
I spent half the fight scratching my head which is a shame since I was so hyped for a final conflict similar to Josuke vs Kira which I thought was exceptional due to how both characters relied on their raw abilities to outsmart each other.
the best kira was bowie kira
you cannot prove me wrong
Most SC stands have abilities that reflect the meaning of their tarot cards. Like, for example, in tarot, The World's planetary ruler is Saturn, the ruler of time. So it makes sense that The World is able to stop time.
But one stand whose ability doesn't make sense is Star Platinum. The "Star" card has nothing to do with time, so it shouldn't be able to stop time. Can someone explain this to me?
We all know what the Part 5 anime is gonna look like.
Yes he does you fucking cuck, actually READ part 6.
It's because of Joseph's HNNNNNNNNNNG isn't it
I'm sorry I see a lack of cripples and quadruple-testicled husbandos in this picture
The fuck would that be, the ability to manipulate matter so he could be an even bigger faggot?
I understand Diego and Gappy, I really do, but "Finna Nut"? Seriously?
Speaking of rocks crushing people
Wouldn't it come down to the Joestar/Brando connection?
DIO has a lot of similarities with a lot of them, even though some are vampiric abilities rather than stand-related. He can use HP like Joseph, has a time-stopping punchghost like Jotaro, has life-giving powers he used to create zombies like Giorno, and healed Pucci's foot like Josuke, and when he was a severed head he used veins as threads to get around like Jolyne.
No he doesn't you fucking cuck, read the last chapter.
Why is Johnny's death a meme? Like it intentionally spoils anime-only fags who wander into the thread. It's not like we made Jolyne and Jotaro's deaths memes.
Don't forget Giorno's death.
HOW DOES THIS EXPLAIN OKYASU THEN?! THE RETARD HAS THE POTENTIAL OF BEING ONE OF THE STRONGEST STAND USERS IN THE JOJO UNIVERSE IF HE HAD 2 BRAIN CELLS!
HE COULD HAVE LITERALLY KILLED 90% OF THE ANTAGONISTS IN PART 4! HE COULD HAVE ACTUALLY DESTROYED SHEER HEART ATTACK! HE COULD HAVE KILLED HIS DAD! HE'S ESSENTIALLY A FASTER AND MORE MOBILE VANILLA FUCKING ICE!
You got it backwards. The abilities of the Stands in Part 3 have nothing to do with the Tarot Cards, the cards just sometimes act as reflections of the users (as spelled by the characters themselves within the narrative). The Stands themselves are modeled mostly after Araki's horror movie influences.
The time stop has nothing to do with that Saturn thing.
>[The World] is the stand I designed first, as a boss, to contrast with Star Platinum's color and other traits. By countering Star Platinum's super speed with time stop, we get a battle between two characters with similar abilities.
It's explained pretty well in the narrative through Jotaro and DIO's bloodline connection, how both characters are fit to stand ahead of the others with their similar superpowered Stands and even the comparisons of similarities and differences that can be made between the two of them as characters.
They developed the time stop through similar circumstances, even.
That's just a fakeout page to troll newcomers.
We all know he gets saved by DIO
Just finished Stardust Crusaders and watched the first episode of Diamond is Unbreakable
About every other general hates blogging, but it's ok here for some reason, so might as well take advantage of that and make some points too
I started with Phantom Blood and I was hooked from the first two minutes. To be fair I knew who Dio Brando and Jonathan Joestar were already but besides knowing the names I had no idea what to expect.
Phantom Blood was fucking awesome, I don't understand why everyone who starts with it seems to hate it. The setting is really cool, the characters were very likable, the story was good, the music was good, I don't see what there is to hate, but now I understand that it just isn't as good as the rest of the series. How someone just starting the series can see that is beyond me, but whatever.
Battle Tendency was everything the first was, but better. I absolutely loved the absurdity of Joseph, his entire existence is an asspull and it was fantastic. The Pillarmen were good villains too, imo, and despite the tired "I'm evil but honorable" thing I still really liked Wamuu. If I cared that much about cliches I wouldn't have kept watching JoJo anyway, not to say there's that many. Caesar was a great partner too, a good advancement on Speedwagon's part. Had some criticism but I'm sure what I'd say was already said by someone before
Stardust Crusaders felt like it dragged on at some points, but the characters just keep advancing as well as the story. Everyone got better aside from the villains, but when you've got an entire tarot deck of villains there's not much room for development. But, like I said, everything gets better in JoJo; I can see a clear advancement in everything, from creativeness to quality. Hearing everyone say how JoJolion is the best story so far only proves that.
I had more to say but either can't think of it and/or don't feel like blogging any more.
tl;dr Why does everyone hate the beginning of JoJo?
It was meant to mirror Part 1's ending and the passing of the torch on from the Joestars to Emporio to continue the fight so they can finally rest. Conveniently Emporio also ends the fight by bodying Pucci. Jolyne's sacrifice was like Jonathan's but this time there was someone else around to finish the job. Also he wrote the ending with it being the end of the entire series in mind so he wanted something huge and world altering and absolutely batshit to go down, and stuff like Bohemian Rhapsody was leading into that.
>mfw king crimson erases the time THE WORLD stopped
Every time. I can't wait to see how it's animated.
Just change the names like they're already doing with stands
>Look at this, Weather! What a crappy guidebook! None of the characters are on it. I wanna see the Whimsy characters, goddammit! Where the fuck is Ricky?
That's not true at all.
>Tower of Gray
>It represents the Tarot Card The Tower, which symbolizes the interruption of a journey by something unexpected and chaos.
>Tries to kill the heroes by making their plane crash
>the Sun is quite literally a blazing Sun
>Death 13 is a grim reaper
>The World can stop time and its planetary ruler is the ruler of time
>Judgement is a genie that judges people
>Wheel of Fortune is a fucking car
And I don't even need to mention obvious stands like Lovers because they speak for themselves.
There's 3 more volumes left to translate and it's 17 volumes long. So it's close to the end. There's like another 5 chapters before the main villain stops hiding in the shadows and launching sneak attacks and reveals himself fully before the final battle starts.
he is stupid enough to have unlocked the full potential of his stand, but too stupid to put it to use
who are the the 10% characters he couldn't defeat? the only one that could beat him is superfly. possibly enigma
Yeah the last chapter they uploaded was part 9 of Green Day which has the 7 page MUDA then there's 5 more chapters of Bruno vs Oasis then Diavolo's full reveal and the Requiem shit.
>that moment when giorno met emporio in the part 6 epilogue
Jotaro, DIO, possibly Whitesnake, Green Child, he would have issues with Vanilla Ice most likely, Diavolo, Maybe Pucci, half the cast of SBR, especially Valentine, Soft and Wet, NKC, Jail House Lock, etc.
>HE COULD HAVE KILLED HIS DAD!
>implying he wanted to do it
I liked the ending of Part 5 as well.
>it was really the Golden Wind of fate, it was a Gold Experience
I dunno, was DIO killing Abbacchio and pinning the blame on Doppio really necessary? I mean Abbacchio was a dick to his kid sure but he was still an ally.
I guess Araki wanted to keep DIO morally ambiguous, it would've been weird if he'd done nothing but help.
These things you mentioned only prove my point further, that is to say that the Tarot Cards and their meaning have little to do with the Stand abilities themselves, but instead act as reflections of the users (or Stands).
Your original post >>151626747 said the Stand abilities supposedly reflected the meaning of the Tarot cards, which is simply not true by Araki's own admission.
Now you are talking about the designs of the Stands themselves and the roles they play in the story, which is not the same thing as their abilities. And aside from Tower Of Gray, none of your examples take into account the actual meaning of the Tarot cards, only how their symbols are incorporated into the Stand's designs and their user's roles in the story.
Pick a subject and stick with it.
>That moment when a shirtless guy with long pink hair gets killed in the collateral damage of the final fight of Pucci vs Jolyne,Jotaro,Giorno and Josuke
Anybody else remember when we saw that giant pink cowboy-knight beating up some dude with curled hair and a longcoat during Made in Heaven? Just goes to show how much Araki plans for in his series.
that's because the original translation team skipped the chapter.
>A FASTER AND MORE MOBILE VANILLA FUCKING ICE
Cream is fast as fuck and can fly all over the place. It's only held back by Vanilla Ice not being able to see while inside it. And I'm pretty sure that The Hand is considered a pretty slow stand.
Basically anything that's long range or really fast can beat him, even if he uses The Hand to its full potential
>The Hanged Man
>Star Platinum and The World
you sure about that?
>i'll share a room with kakyoin because i don't want to share one with that fucking nigger avdol
what did jotaro mean by this?
Ghost Kira was a good guy. If Araki's original plans for him are taken into account (An abusive mother) then it's probable he wouldn't have become a murderer without years and years of horrible shit happening to him. When his memories but not his personality were erased he had a new start and used it well, it proves nature<nurture.
Part 4fags with their 'but Kira must PAY!!!!' schtick need to read the fucking manga and recognize that Kira the serial-killer died when the hands took him, punishing Kira the ghost who doesn't even remember anything and did nothing but help would just be pointless and cruel.
>People say Valentine was fat but he became /fit/ when he got the heart of the corpse
>Shown /fit/ in the flashback when he gets the heart
Was it a new stand or just another ability? Don't you remember Kira's 4th ability which evolved into this one?
>tfw Kira revealed his true identity
Nope, Root-world Valentine had the heart. See?
